Bri + Tim | Wedding

Bri and Tim's wedding is all about the glances and the looks. 

Bri smiling at herself in the mirror after she's put on her wedding dress. Bri's dad tearing up as he sees her for the first time. The way Tim (we call him Smiley Tim) smiles at Bri when she's walking down the aisle and the way he smiles at her when she's dancing with her dad (That picture will potentially make you cry on the spot so I'm warning you now!). 

There was even a moment during the Best Man's speech when Bri looked at me and just smiled at me because it was all so sweet and sacred and I think she knew I was mentally celebrating them (My inner dialogue at weddings sounds a lot like this, "You go Bri and Tim!!! Somebody throw some heart-shaped confetti!!!!.... Epic speech celebrating your love right?!!... GET THAT first kiss!!!!!.... Good choice with the cupcakes!!!....These two cuddle bugs are killing me! I just want to give them big hugs right now, but it's their wedding day, Stacie, you just let them hug each other while you take pics!").

Lindsey | Bridals

Typically I scout out a spot or two for my sessions, but Lindsey picked this one, and I loved how the Willows framed her in this BEAUTIFUL dress. 

I can't wait to show you all of Lindsey's jewelry details from her wedding! While it rained hard core on Lindsey's wedding day, she was a total trooper the really hot day we photographed her bridals. 

If you could take your bridals again or take them for the first time, what kind of location would you choose? Farm field? Apple orchard? Bold Canyon? Disneyworld?

Caleb + Brenda | Wedding

There was a moment during Caleb and Brenda's vows in their second ceremony, where I turned to Brett and both of us had big 'ole tears sliding down our cheeks. 

This wasn't any 'ole wedding for us, this was Caleb's wedding. Our Caleb. 

We've known Caleb a handful of years now and he has such a special place in our hearts. When I was a Hall Director (Yay those days of working in higher education!) , Caleb was one of the RA's on my staff. He brings energy into a room, into his friendships, and laughter into so many moments. He's a leader that thinks hard about the important things.

He's just as messy as he is awesome (aren't we all!?) I have such a very clear memory of him crying on my kitchen floor, upset with himself at who he was and decisions he was making... but going to his wedding showed me so much growth in him.  Listening to his vows had me in tears, excited and joy-filled for who he's become(ing). It also showed me he's SERIOUSLY found a girl who's a really stellar match for his shenanigans. 

Whether he knows it or not, Caleb has brought healing to my heart in the areas of motherhood. I'm not a mom and Brett's not a dad. But there are times now and back in higher ed when I was less of a supervisor and more of a mom/friend. Caleb even called Brett and I Mom and Dad, which really felt fitting sometimes and honestly made us feel super loved by him. He's totally not our kid, but we love him and now we're in love with him and Brenda. Yup, couple crush'n on a couple. That's thing right?

Caleb and Brenda only had, like, two days together in San Antonio for their wedding weekend before Caleb had to leave, so I knew every second they were together was special to them. They didn't have a first look (WHICH IS WHY CALEB'S WEARING AN EPIC CRY FACE WHEN HE SEES BRENDA COMING DOWN THE AISLE-- check out all his groomsmen leaning in to see his face-- it's so sweet!). They had two ceremonies, the biggest wedding party I've ever photographed, and a reception with so many great hispanic traditions. 

Here's my favorite sacred moments from their day. They were troopers, it was one hundred and three degrees.

Bingham Wedding

Alyssa walked down the aisle to the theme song from Anne of Green Gables... so if you're like me and music really impacts how you experience life, you should definitely press play before you scroll through this wedding. 

Daniel and Alyssa only had eyes for each other on their wedding day. The only way I can think to describe it, is that Daniel genuinely adored her and wanted to be by her side all day. It was so sweet to see a gentle and kind love like theirs. 

I meet with every couple a few weeks before their wedding to finalize details. And the most important question I ask them when I meet with them is, "How do you want to remember this day ten years from now?" Alyssa and Daniel said they were most excited to remember the faces of everyone around them. While I didn't include all the MANY candid shots I took that day in this gallery, I can see in th
